I`ve been lurking around a couple of other places lately where the talk has frequently turned to saws modified by Sawracr (Jon Ruppely) Ken Dunn (KDHotsaws) and Ruppedoggy  (Mike Ruppely), and I`ve got the answer I`m looking for. The 395XP is a good saw with plenty of potential, but Ken Dunn is getting nearly 8 HP out of the 372XP, a saw I know well, with good longevity. The 372XP is the perfect combo of low weight and balance for me and this seems like the way to go. Maybe I need a 385XP modified by sawracr as well since they are reputed to cut with an 088 Stihl or 3120 Husky at several pounds less. Tim the tool man better look out. Russ

Anyone have a link to  any of the saw modification outfits?  We run both Stihls and Huskys on our jobs, but I'm the only one around here who can handle one of the big saws all day 084, 088, 2100 etc).  If we could get some high powered smaller saws, we might actually get some reasonable production out of someone besides me, and I might get a break too. ;D   I'm not looking for racing saws, and would prefer a magic wand or a laser, but anything reasonably close in a chainsaw with good durability works for me.  Thanks.

Try www.walkerssawshop.com or kdhotsaw@hotmail.com. Walkers looks like a good value for the money with some significant gains but Ken Dunn is getting some outrageous horsepower with good longevity, albeit at a higher cost. Ken says he has one faller who has used the same modified 371XP Husky for more than three years so far. He claims to get between 7.5 and 8 HP out of a 371 or 372. I think I`m gonna have me one of those. Russ
